In Calgary we are blessed (and somewhat stressed) to get all four seasons. It means that in the spring we get rain and fresh blooms, that the summer brings hot sunny days, the in the fall we can walk through crunchy golden leaves, and that in the winter we get a blanket of snow over beautiful Calgary. In many other places in the world, they are lucky to experience two seasons, let alone all four. 

Because we get all four seasons, Calgary has worked hard to make sure that there are activity opportunities for residents no matter what the weather looks like outside. One way they have done this is by efficiently transforming sites from season to season, adapting to each new need. The best example of this is the Bowness Lagoon.

If you have lived through a Calgary winter before, you have undoubtedly collected some nifty tricks to make the season more bearable. Every Calgarian could probably write a book about their adventures in the wintertime, which is both a blessing a curse. If this is your first winter in Calgary, talk to your neighbor for a wealth of knowledge! Also… good luck.If you have looked outside of your window recently, you may have noticed the fluffy white stuff sticking to the ground. The green grass from the summer is all dried out, the beautiful leaves have all fallen, and daylight savings has officially begun to cover the sun with dark skies early in the evening. It is that time of year, folks! Wintertime.

We, too, have collected some tricks for

The end of the year is quickly approaching with December just around the corner. While the real estate market is most active during the summer, now is the time you should really be buying.

There are a lot of advantages to purchasing a home before the new year, specifically if that home is new. Whether it is a new home in a developing community or an infill home, closing the deal by December 31st is a great way to leverage your home buying experience to work in your favour.

As we have said time and time again, one of the best parts of being a Calgary resident is the sense of community that is available to every single individual. Calgary consists of a collection of communities that are inclusive and actively seeking to make every Calgarians experience in this amazing city the best it can possiblely be. After all, it’s not only the property that makes a home: it is the community.

Here at Team Ken Richter we have the pleasure of working with communities all over the city. However, we have been fortunate to have the opportunity to work most closely with the communities of Montgomery and Bowness. Both are rich with history. This history is filled with one overarching theme that the first ever residents and present

The winter may have Christmas, the spring may have flowers, the summer may have backyard BBQ’s, but here at Team Ken Richter we are particularly fond of Autumn. The fall is an absolutely striking season, filled with deep golds and burgundy’s, crunchy leaves, warm scarves and pumpkins. Although we love warm summer days, fall cannot be matched in beautiful Calgary, Alberta. 

The autumn season is fleeting. Here in Calgary it typically lasts from mid-September to mid-October. We are so lucky to get to experience all four seasons here in Calgary, no matter how short some of them may be. Soak them in. Experience them as deeply as you can.

That being said, here is our Autumn Bucket List:

1). Explore A New Community: Communities such as Bowness,

The fall is an extremely popular time for people seeking to rent a space as they start fresh and look for somewhere to settle down for the new school and work year. Are you looking to rent? We have some tips for you!

1). Make a list of non-negotiables and stick to it. Decide before hand what you are willing to spend each month on rent and utilities in order to narrow down your search, only look at places that are pet friendly if that is something you need, if you do not like basement suites, add that to your list, etc! Be flexible, but stick to what you absolutely will not negotiate on and don’t waste your time searching for places that do not fit that criteria.

2). Location is the most important part of whatever space it is you decide to rent.
